We know that your Akribos watch is important to you and understand that the sentimental value more often than not outweighs the monetary value. Our expert watchmakers strive to make sure your watch can be worn for many years to come.

Not only can we take preemptive measures to keep your watch running for a long time, but we can restore watches that have seen better days. We are willing to hunt for rare parts. We have done many repairs that others have given up on. No job is too big or too small and we can do any repair on any watch. Our repairs can be as simple as a battery change, pin replacement, or band replacement, and can be as complicated as a dial refinish, a band/case polish, movement clean and overhaul and even a complete restoration.

We have a simple process for mailing your watch to us, our estimates are free and have free return shipping, even if you decline the estimate.

The most common problems we see with watches are low or dead batteries, worn out capacitors, broken crystals, band wear and tear, and dead movements.  Repair on a movement can be time consuming and labor intensive, therefore, usually cheaper to replace instead of repair them.  The only time we repair a quartz movement is when a replacement is not available any longer. Other common repairs include a broken crown (the knob that sets the time) numbers, hands or other dial markers that have come loose. Whether your quartz repair is common or rare, we will be able to fix it for you.

The most common problems we see in mechanical watches are broken crystals, band wear and tear, and a non-working movement. This type of movement requires a full-service clean and overhaul which consists of taking the entire movement apart, clean each tiny piece in a ultrasonic cleaner, re oil, re assemble and put back together, there may be damaged parts that will be determined during your free estimate.  Other common repairs to all mechanical watches are broken stem and crown, or numbers, markers or hands that have come loose. Whether your mechanical repair is common or vintage rare, we will be able to fix your watch for you.
